Zappos Blogs: fun and weirdness
This Saturday, we had our annual Zappos Family Picnic at the Veterans Memorial Park in Boulder City. The picnic was a 1960s Woodstock theme, and there was lots of tie dye, peace signs and hippie fun to go around! Zapponians brought their friends, families and even pets to relax and soak up the gorgeous sunshine and ‘60s nostalgia (even if some of us weren’t even around in the ‘60s!). True to theme, there were VW microbuses, a jewelry-making booth, and a 1960s cover band. It was definitely a great day filled with barefoot dancing, food, rides and good ol’ fashioned family fun!
Special thanks to the P.E.A.C.E. team for putting together such an amazing picnic. We can’t wait for next year’s!
Here at the Zappos HQ, we love to celebrate every holiday. Actually, we love to celebrate just about everything, and always manage to find reasons for celebrations. Since Easter is coming up this weekend, we held an Amazing Easter Hunt yesterday. What is the Amazing Easter Hunt you ask? It’s a crazy combo of Minute To Win It, The Amazing Race and a good old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt.
Each team had to complete Minute To Win It-style games such as strapping on a belt with a tissue box filled with ping pong balls and shaking and shimmying like mad in order to get all the balls out of the box as fast as possible.
After teams were eliminated, three teams were left standing to do the actual Easter Egg Hunt. The premise was like The Amazing Race in that they had to complete challenges to get clues about where the eggs are hidden. In the end, Team "Egg-cellence" (Corey B., Jesse C. and Maureen S.) reigned supreme and took home 1st place.
